I am scratchbuilding a Thunderbird 2. Still got lots to do but I've finished the pod which, by a happy coincidence is more or less in scale with the Konami models.

Wow, those look great!

Especially the hovering-above-the-water pics

Although it doesn't quite look like the original Thunderbirds - you can't see the strings

Thanks very much. That model is way too heavy for strings! Needs rope.

Many years ago, I scratchbuilt a Skydiver. I've not been totally happy with it but have decided to overhaul it. The Diver section didn't need much to get it acceptable. Its only problem being that it is rather heavy! (I put whatever I had into it, it is mainly MDF). Sky One is next up for improvement but For now, here are some pictures of the diver section.

Just obtained an original Star Cops ESL1 patch so thought I'd take some pictures of some of the other patches that are on my original costumes. I included the original Laser pistol because it's the highlight of my collection!

I picked up a cheap and battered Matchbox 'Hot Rod Draguar' recently and thought it would make a nice Anderson-esque car, so did a quick conversion.

Hi Kevin, you've got original Star Cops costumes! How did you get them?

Yep, I've got Spring's jumpsuit and his blue jacket. I've got Anna Shoun's Hanimed uniform, a moonbase technicians uniform, a Ronald Reagen space station technicians outfit and a space liner stewardess' jacket. They came from a props auction house and also ebay or trading with other collectors. The whole lot were auctioned by the BBC in the early 90's when they were getting rid of everything. Oh I have the laser pistol Spring kills Chandri with too.

I have completed my replica of the Spacex Hawk, bringing to an end my little (4 year) project to replicate all 15 of the Carded Triang Spacex toys.

Here is a SaturnV that I scratchbuilt quite a few years ago. It is mainly made from an old drainpipe and works out at about 1/90th scale.
